The Sf-Bay Area Chapter held its first event of the year on 10 April 2017. Hosted by WeWork SoMa, around 30 people gathered to find out more about new Chapter Board Members, the Chapter’s focus and activities and to meet two of our new Working Group Chairs, Jackie Kerr (Working Group on Data Protection, Privacy & Security) and Brandie Nonnecke (Working Group on Internet Governance).
There was lively discussion and several attendees expressed interest about becoming more involved in the WGs and in the Chapter in general.
A full meeting report will be available shortly.
